My students always love when we learn about digraphs because it makes them feel like such “big kids” to say they know what a digraph is! Plus, it really opens up the door to reading so many new words. Another thing my students love are puzzle activities! These Heart Digraph Puzzles for Valentine’s Day are perfect for working on beginning digraph sounds sh, ch, th, and wh with early readers this time of year!

Heart Digraph Puzzles for Valentine’s Day
These heart digraph puzzles work on matching up common beginning digraphs to their pictures and they are so easy to prep! Just print, laminate, cut down the middle – and you have a new literacy center ready to go!
Ways to Use
In my classroom, I placed these puzzles in a literacy center for my students to work on independently but you could also use them in small groups.
After laminating, easily turn these puzzles into a self-correcting activity by writing the beginning digraph on the back of the picture half in permanent marker.
Then, students can pair up the heart halves, turn them over, and check their work to see if they are correct!
They also are great for partner work, early finishers, in a pocket chart – there are just so many possibilities with this simple printable!
